Choosing to build a business in real estate investment affords many the opportunity to prioritize an additional career while generating passive income. On today’s episode, we speak with Adrian Chuquillangui, who serves on the coast guard, has a growing young family, and is passionate about helping members of the military to take the necessary steps toward financial freedom. You’ll hear about his first multifamily investment, what first drew him to real estate investment, and the power of seeking out partners with skills that complement yours. Adrian tells us about the first acquisition that he is heading towards and we talk about the role a business plan plays, as well as why he and his wife have chosen to give their profits to Focus Missionaries. We touch on the power of having a driving force behind your work, apart from financial gain, and Adrian gives us a peek into his morning routine, which starts with prayer, followed by the hardest task he has to complete. Adrian tells us why it has been so valuable for him to have a coach who is further along in his business journey and why you should educate yourself in order to avoid traps and pitfalls by doing this first. He also shares with us the power of confidence and charisma, and tells us why he defines success as the quality of your relationships before honoring his wife for her pivotal role in his coast guard and real estate journeys.
